    I have been reading several threads about Timbrens and other options for load supports on trucks. 2 Questions. 1. Is it needed? 2. What is best/most cost effective?

    I'm using front Timbrens on my F-150 4x4 with a 7.5' Air Flo Plow (Carbon Steel) and they made a world of difference. That coupled with some new ball joints, good tires and some ballast weight in the back (about 300-400 lbs. of salt bags) and it runs well. I highly recommend the Timbrnes, especially for 1/2 tons. Got a set for $220 (CAN)

    If I put them on should it be on the front or back? (I am guessing front.)

    for plowing, on the front for sure. If you are intending on hauling any heavy loads in the back or by trailer, install the back ones as well. They are very cost effective and I am impressed with the enhancement they provide to the suspension. I couldn't run my plow properly without them.
